RE Cares Month spotlights global community involvement and takes place each September. In 2010, thousands of employees took part in creative volunteering and fundraising projects. In the US, for example, LexisNexis held a Corporate Responsibility Day, engaging over 2,000 staff in community projects across the nation. Other examples include a children's educational support day at the Aatheeswarar Charitable Trust with Elsevier Chennai; a blood drive for the American Red Cross and fundraising activities for Open Door Shelter by Reed Exhibitions Norwalk; and a volunteer day at the Diamond Riding School for the Disabled by RBI UK.
In addition, we held our fourth global book drive which saw more than 5,000 employees donating some 18,000 books for local and developing world readers. We gave $1,000 to the office donating the largest relative number of books, for employees to donate to the charity of their choice.
